Really crowded, Especially during the weekends/high-season but a must-see place for divers, not for snorkels.

Best snorkelling experience ever had. Beautiful corals and fishes. Spectacular and breathtaking. And the corals are just next to the shore, no need of deep diving. Also enjoyed camel ride and great Egyptian food.
